After a break of yesterday’s low and some consolidation eur/usd formed a morning star pattern and is rising now. I may remind you that it is a bullish candle pattern formation that indicates bullish pressure and may serve as a signal to go long.
The pattern should be taken even more seriously as it formed right on 200 ema on 1 hour. You see, we wait for more points of confluence in order to take a signal. Just the mere fact that it is on 200 ema or sma is not enough to go long or short. You need more factors and the second one is morning start candle pattern.
The first level of resistance is even number of 1.1100 that coincides with 200 sma on 15 minute chart. The next much stronger resistance level is yesterday’s high: 1.1125 level.
On the other hand we should remember that the pair has been going down since last Thursday when it formed a peak at 1.1213 level.
We should also remember that long term trend has been down for a year now. Intermediate trend is neutral and short term trend is down. Yet day traders can trade both directions when key points of intra day support or resistance are reached.
